[ mention "peace, quite & tranquility" and somehow trigger FOLO ]

Sugar Bush Cottage

This is a Karoo retreat at its best. Hot tub, sheltered entertainment area, views for ever, and completely private. After a break here, you probably won’t go anywhere else for your time away. The cottage has a generous living area, comfortable bed with two large couches that fold out into double bed size and a modern kitchen with full size fridge. The living area leads out onto a large covered deck with lots of seating for lazy days spent enjoying the view.

The cabin is positioned high up the side of a ‘Kopje’ and commands a north-westerly view over an uninhabited valley. The closest other accommodation is well out of sight and at least a kilometre away. This unit is absolutely ideal for a family of 6 and also offers a separate cottage for two who want to enjoy a family weekend but still have some privacy. This extends the comfortable accommodation to 8. The adjacent and separate cottage is only available to rent to friends or family of those in the main Sugar Bush Cottage.

Electricity is solar, and water is from our own boreholes. Yes, the power is always on at Gecko Rock and the taps always have water.
